Middlethorpe Hall is a William and Mary country house, built in 1699 of mellow red brick with limestone dressings, for Thomas Barlow, a master cutler from Sheffield. It was bought in the 1980s and reopened as a luxury Hotel, Restaurant and Spa in 1984, rescued from decay, caringly and lovingly restored by Historic House Hotels. In September 2008, Middle Thorpe Hall and the other two Historic House Hotels became the inalienable property of the National Trust by donation, with all profits benefiting the houses and the charity. There are ten elegant guestrooms and suites to be found in the main Hall, with further delightful guestrooms in the restored 18th Century Courtyard and cottage. Guestrooms are all en suite and furnished in a country house style, with antiques and fine prints. Middle Thorpe Spa is housed in a Grade II listed cottage, which has been carefully restored and modified to house a large indoor swimming pool, spa bath, steam room and sauna, gymnasium and three beauty treatment rooms.Middle Thorpe Hall is well known for its comfortable, luxurious atmosphere, as well as its beautifully restored walled gardens with 18th Century Dovecote, lavender walk, rolling lawns with ha-ha and parkland landscape.

posh city stay

Really nice feel-good factor here! Lovely guest lounge, silver-platter service of drinks. We didn't eat dinner there but the menu looked amazing (though pricy). Breakfast was delightful - basic continental included in our price = drinks, cereal, toast, pastries, fruit... in other words, plenty - and cooked breakfast a reasonably priced extra. Service was brisk, friendly and nothing-too-much-trouble. Rooms are historic so you have to overlook some untidy bits of decorating, they have done a very good job of bringing modern expectations into an old building. BUT our bed was rock hard!
